You know, there's not a week that goes by for sure and maybe not a day that goes by that a patient doesn't say to me, “Doc, you've got the best staff I've ever seen. I've been in dental offices all over the place, medical offices all over the place. Where do you find them?” Somehow they find us. We've been fortunate in that we've got good people and we allow those people to hire the next people. We have staff here who care about what they do. They care about people. First and foremost they have great attitudes and great personalities. We spend the time to train them well and we pay them well. We like to say we're able to surround ourselves with people who have a passion for what they do and I think it shows.
